The Herald reports that a string of violence that started in Mountlake Terrace has led to kidnapping and assault charges for an Everett man:

Detectives are working to unravel a tangled web of violence that appears to have started in Mountlake Terrace on May 13 and ended with the arrest of an Everett man in Whatcom County the next day.

The man, 44, went to an apartment where a Ferndale woman, 22, was staying, Mountlake Terrace police Cmdr. Doug Hansen said. The pair knew each other.

The man reportedly was upset at the woman because he believed she owed him money, Hansen said. The man allegedly became enraged, stripped the woman of her clothes and beat her with his fists and a lead-filled leather bag.

The woman told detectives he held a knife to her throat and threatened to scalp her, Hansen said.

To end the assault, the woman told the man that she had some of his property, including a firearm, at her parent’s home in Ferndale. The attacker left and the woman fled to an Everett apartment, but the man tracked her down, police said.

He abducted her and took her to the Ferndale house and the violence continued, Hansen said. Ferndale police arrested the man and he was booked into the Whatcom County Jail and transferred Thursday to the Snohomish County Jail.

He was booked for investigation of first-degree domestic violence assault and first-degree domestic violence kidnapping.

    • Ha. This folk (singular; me, who writes 99% of the stories here) could use any help he could get. With working a day job up to 60 hours a week and a two year old, getting posts online in a timely manner is bound to result in a few spelling errors. So… if you can be available 24/7 and have a turnaround of less than 30 minutes I’d be glad to have you proofread everything I post. 🙂 Or you can just correct them in the comments and I will promptly fix the errors.
